Alas, August is upon us. With less than a month until I’m back at school, I’ve been trying out plenty of new beauty products for glowing hair, skin, and nails. Looking back at every beauty product I’ve used this summer, a few stand out to me as stars! I’m super excited to share them with you. We still have a little bit of time before the summer ends, but these are my top 3 favorite beauty products of the season.
This product came in my monthly Glossybox. I’m very hesitant to use most face masks because I have dry skin and some acne. The last thing I want is to irritate my skin and cause a breakout! In the past, face masks have caused me to break out, but this one didn’t. This mask gave me glowy, dewy skin for days. Not surprising, since the mask contains 10,000 ppm of watermelon extract. My skin was soft and moisture-rich immediately after using it. I also noticed that my acne seemed less red for several days. The face mask was super fun to put on. It came with 2 sheets of 12 (6 patches per sheet) adorable watermelon patches that I put all over my face like stickers!
This gel polish is AMAZING. I got it in a beautiful metallic pink shade, but Raisin the Bar comes in 21 unique colors. The polish dried almost instantly and it lasted super long. It shined gorgeously and the application was seamless. My nails were so perfect that it looked like I had visited the salon. I recommend this polish for anyone who’s impatient as I and wants flawless nails without having to wait a long time for them to dry!
This is 100% the perfect summer contour/highlight palette. Also, it’s cruelty-free. It comes in three matte shades: diamond (contour), blush, and glow (highlight). Diamond is brown, blush is pink, and glow is yellow. It’s the Jeffree Star version of Neapolitan ice cream. Each matte shade has a shimmery equivalent! The palette is perfect for a starry summer night out. Everytime I wear it, I get complimented on my highlight! A little bit of this palette goes a long way — just a few taps of any shimmer shade do the job!
